Empowering Minds. Achieving Dreams.
The 2021-22 Silsbee ISD School Calendar gained approval on Monday, March 8, 2021 by the SISD Board of Trustees.
The calendar was created based upon a nine-week grading period. Two different calendars were then provided to campus administrators and teachers for review and feedback.
The feedback, listed below, was taken into consideration when developing the calendar for recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
No weeklong break in February
Not enough in-service days before school starts, especially with no exchange days
Reduced student instructional days by creating longer holiday weekends in February and April. Teacher days added to August.
Concerned with the length of the school day (total minutes) for students and teachers
Reduced the length of the school day by 10 minutes.
Nine-week grading periods with two teacher planning days is great.
Changes to the number of student days above caused the need to change a teacher planning day to an early release for students allowing the rest of the day for teacher planning.
